Walk in Beauty

Here are some beauty and fashion tips that I want to share with the ladies. Beauty comes from within and all that jazz. You know that part already. These are some solid ideas I made up along the way.  I try to keep them in mind when going about the day.  You may have your own take on what fits your personality. At least I hope you do! I know you do. But if you could use a little encouragement or advice on how to mix it up, read on.

  • Glitter eye shadow is fun for work and play
  • Fake eyelashes are worth trying and trying until you get it right
  • Liquid eyeliner takes A L O T of practice but once you get the hang of it, watcha!
  • With sparkly glitter eye shadow use lip gloss not lipstick
  • With subdued eyes, go for the RED lips!
  • Wear jewelry that makes you happy preferably big chunky rings
  • Invest in a few pieces of nice jewelry and wear them everyday
  • Mix your good jewelry with your fake jewelry
  • Accessories are your friend but limit them to a few small pieces and one big wow piece. 
  • Wearing comfy shoes all the time is A-Ok after you're married
  • Uncomfortable but great looking shoes are ok if you will be sitting down
  • Find the color that look good on you. Experiment, experiment, experiment until you get it right. Then wear it loud and proud!
  • Bright colors are not scary!
  • Beige is for grandmas!!
  • Khakis should be burned in the BBQ pit or used as canvas
  • Hats only hide the beauty of your gorgeous mane, skip them. Plus they give you hat hair. Not good.
  • Buy a good pair of cowboy boots for those days you feel like roughing it and going against the grain. They're oddly empowering.
  • Silk scarfs are for baby boomers
  • Yes, people will think you're a lesbian if you have short spikey hair (and send me e-mails about supporting GLAAD . . . inside joke)
  •  Condition your hair, always.
  • Control the frizz.
  • Keep your toenails painted. It detracts from people noticing your dry feet.
  • On the same note, wear bright lipstick to make your teeth look whiter or to draw attention away from the huge honkin' zit on your nose
  • A little cleavage never killed anyone. Just put smiles on people's faces.
  • You don't have to smile at everyone. It only makes you look crazy, not friendly.
  • On the flip side, smile once in a while fer Pete's sake. It ain't that bad. 
  • Ugly old men aren't always creepy. They're just tired and have better stories than goofy 20-somethings.
  • Beer is for men unless you're broke and he's cheap. 
  • Cosmos are yummy and pink
  • Ask for extra olives
  • Stop after 2 drinks
  • Eat before you go out drinking
  • Wear your beautiful fancy dress. Don't store it away in the closet. It may never come out.
  • Comfy sweats belong inside the house and maybe at the grocery store if paired with big chunky sunglasses and a pony tail, but never out in public beyond that.
  • If you get the urge to put a flower in your hair, do it.
  • Pigtails look cute on little girls, not grown women.
  • Drink water, slather lotion, and spritz some perfume
  • Don't dress for others, dress for yourself
  • Dress to match your mood
  • And most importantly, remember that you only live this life once! Enjoy it!
